J.LIVE Talk was founded in 2015 as a college-level Japanese language presentation competition that emphasizes a comprehensive range of learned communication skills.  It evaluates the dynamism, vision and level of engagement of each participant’s presentation, which can include audio-visual materials, audience interaction, and other innovations that enhance their talk in a manner similar to the TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) talks.

We added a high school division in 2020, and a high school group video division in 2022.  After two years of online competitions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to have a hybrid event in 2022, and we finally resumed all in-person competition this year!

We are looking forward to providing this opportunity for Japanese learners to stimulate each other, get together and create a lively learning community from here at the heart of Washington, D.C.  Please join us!

The final round took place at GWU on November 12th.  Please see the J.LIVE Talk 2023 Final Round Schedule.
